Andromeda (2000): S01E08 – The Banks of the Lethe


Introduction

Captain Dylan Hunt and the crew of the Andromeda Ascendant set out on a mission to rebuild the Systems Commonwealth 300 years after its fall.

Outline

Dylan discovers a way to communicate through a black hole with his former fiancée, on a ship sent to rescue the Andromeda in the past, but when faced with a possible reunion by transporting through time, he must decide whether to leave the future behind and abandon his mission to reform the Commonwealth. Resolving to time-travel back to the rescue ship, then return to the future with his lover, Dylan finds himself on the bridge of the Starry Wisdom just in time for a Nietzschean attack. The crew of the Wisdom trick their attackers into thinking the Andromeda is fully functional by nudging its orbit around the black hole, as Dylan sends a gravity-warped transmission threatening attack. The ruse works and the Nietzscheans leave, but Harper informs everyone that he can only lock on to Dylan to bring back. Dylan says goodbye and returns to his own time. Upon his return, he learns that while the efforts to alter Andromeda’s destiny failed to free him in the past, the “nudges” made it possible for the Eureka Maru to save him in the present, so Sarah saved him after all. Guest stars Sam Jenkins, Kevin Sorbo’s real life wife, as Dr. Sara Riley, Captain Dylan Hunt’s lost love.
